Based on a recommendation from a friend, we decided to add the bakery to our list of "must eat" places to visit. The service was very slow, and our sandwiches/paninis were just ok. We did purchase some desserts to go...they were pretty tasty.

Not a place I would go back to - unless you wanted to visit for hours. In which case this is a great spot.

Is a cozy place that prices are good and a very warm staff. I have been there in many occasions, and every single dish is delicious.

Air conditioned, great food, great coffee and WIFI! All of the food was great. It was more expensive than most of the places around but it was worth it to beat the heat and catch up on internet based things.
